   A post doesn't normally have anything in the 
QUERY_STRING.  Rather a POSTed form has the stuff 
being sent in the request body, which is read from 
STDIN by a script.  QUERY_STRING is still available 
for use.  Consider this form:

form method=post action=myscript.cgi
input name=emailaddress

  The "emailaddress" input would NOT appear 
in QUERY_STRING, but rather would appear to 
the script as STDIN, or to another module as 
the request body.  You can still do:

form method=post action=myscript.cgi?id=reallyunique
input name=emailaddress
